Would You Try KFC’s Gravy Based Cocktails?

Apparently in Europe ‘stocktails’ are a thing (cocktails made from stock). KFC is hoping to leap on this bandwagon by encouraging customers to make cocktails out of their gravy. Sounds bizarre? Well, they’ve actually given you all the tools you need to make your stocktail a success in the form of three recipes.

The cocktails: Finger Lickin’ Sour, Gravy Mary, and Southern Twist. If any of these names tickle your fancy then you’re in luck as the recipes are below. So go ham, or should I say gravy?
